Thriving Children Podcast

Shining the light on child development

The Thriving Children Podcast is a show for parents and educators, that shines the light on child development. Weaving its way through each episode is a central theme of movement, play and connection, crucial ingredients in the early years of life. Host Clare Crew is an early childhood and inclusive education teacher who specialises in the brain-body connection. She helps the children the system leaves behind, those with learning, attention and behavioural challenges. You can learn more about her or the podcast at www.ThrivingChildren.com.au
